Student Code of Conduct and Administrative Policies and Procedures The University of West Georgia (UWG) strives to create a safe and inclusive campus environment where students are welcome to explore, thrive and succeed. The Wolf Code is a holistic overview of community expectations including the values that reinforce how students are expected to behave. The following regulations serve as a preventative measure to ensure that the campus community is knowledgeable on local, state, and federal laws along with UWG policies and procedures. Unfamiliarity is not an excuse for infractions of the regulations and the university will not tolerate academic misconduct or non-academic misconduct. Students, registered student organizations, and groups are expected to adhere to conduct regulations and University has the authority to enforce them, terms students agree to abide by through their enrollment.
Interaction between Student Code of Conduct and Law Student conduct is governed by the Code, university policy and applicable law. Students involved in criminal manners may be sanctioned by the University in addition to any sanctions that may be imposed by a court of law. However, the relationship a Student has with the state or federal court system does not alter the Student’s relationship with the university.
